Customer Question
Hi. We have...

Hi. We have a F&P washing machine. The pump stops after about 10 seconds running. If I reset (turn off power at both machine and wall) and wait for 15 min's (+-) the pump will run again for a further 15 sec's. I think there is probably a circuit brd component fault.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

GW612 Fisher Paykel, 8 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible. Depending on fault

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just some idea if I'm on the right track

Generally on these machines the pumps are pretty notorious for going out, what I would do is, *carefully* if full of water tilt the machine back, towards the front right once you tip it back a little you will see the drain pump of the machine (the one with the little fan blade on the bottom) inspect that and see if you see any corrosion or rust or anything like that on it, and if you try to spin that fan blade by hand see how easy it turns
